This endeavor would obviously cost money. I am a hardworking father who would have to take off time from work and would have to cover bills as well as the cost of the trip

WHAT WE’RE DOING

So before I put wheels in motion, boots on the ground etc. I figured I’d pick your brain in regard to this idea. Yesterday before I went out with my sign I was angry that the 8th had come and started thinking of ways to affect change. The methods and tactics we’ve all been pushing, practicing and being told to try, have seem to produce

little result. It’s a purely political path and really what it accomplishes is MAYBE some compromise. So I started thinking of the civil rights movement(the parallels are obviously a stretch) but the tactics of peaceful protest and civil disobedience were effective. If only in the sense that it provided a humanity to the injustice that was occurring as well as raising awareness of the people who were not being affected. And this is where the problem lies. No one I can think of approves of unreasonable and unfair legislation and a lot of it gets snuck by without anyone noticing. But what the FDA is pulling here as you obviously know is purely special interest pandering and lobby money motivated. 

After the post I put up with the sign received the response it did, a light went off. Maybe this is the way to get noticed. When I said no one didn’t see the sign, I meant passerbys. And when you explain exactly what is going on people get angry. Everyone who walked by asked questions. 

So today I thought, what if I went on a tour? A tour of vape shops and manufacturers with the same idea. Sitting in front of shops answering questions, talking to the people affected by these regs. As I shared the other day(with some trepidation as not to seem exploitative) my own father is succumbing to tobacco related illness. Putting faces to the movement. The small businesses, the smokers. And with said tour meeting vapers and kind of mobilizing them in a grassroots face to face way that might inspire them to do similar things. We know 200 vapers outside of a state building gets laughs from the public and the rest of us are preaching to the choir from the safety of social media.
